Happy Monday, and it's a short week for me! I'm taking Thursday and Friday off as staycation days. I haven't decided on anything fun, but I'm taking my car in for an oil change, and I have my chiro appointment, both on Thursday.
The weekend started Friday, with my parents coming down to drop off their cats. They flew out to California for vacation Sunday, and I'm cat sitting for them. Allie enjoys being an only cat, but Hudson and Hathaway are here for more than a week. Friday we watched the World Championships I had DVR'd, and now I can say I've met a world champion. That race was unbelievable.
Saturday, we took my grandfather out to lunch in Old Town Arvada, and then went to the Army Navy Surplus store since he wanted a hat (he served in the navy), then we went to one of the best bakeries. It's called Rheinlander German Bakery, and it's amazing. You can smell it when the doors are open, and it smells like baking cinnamon. My mom and I get our sweet tooth from my grandfather, and we all enjoyed getting some sweets from there.
I had planned on maybe an afternoon run afterwards, but it started thunder storming when we were driving back. Saturday morning I'd gone to Dick's Sporting Goods to look at the treadmills they have. I have pictures of 3 that looked good, and now I'll be doing some research in my free time. Since afternoon weather is a bit unknown each day, I really am looking for a treadmill now. So Saturday ended up being an extra rest day, but this is also what I like about not being in training yet.
Sunday I got to the gym for biking, and took it easy this day. My parents left for the airport at 5:45, and I woke up in time to see them off. Even though I went back to bed, I didn't get back to sleep. After biking and doing the grocery shopping, I got home, and did one of the new Pure Barre workouts. I even had help from Hudson. He's such a sweetie, and it did get interesting while I was trying to balance for some exercises, and giving him belly rubs at the same time. When I was on the floor, he wanted to lick my face.
The afternoon was spent napping, and then starting a new book. Two books I wanted were released at the beginning of August, and I ordered both from Amazon. I started On Her Majesty's Frightfully Secret Service, by Rhys Bowen, and I love this series. It won't take me long to finish it.
